ABOUT MATTHEW WOOD (Freelance filmmaker & artist based in London)
A-brim with quiet charm, Matt sees the world as an artist does (which is good, because that’s kind of what he is). He is a master of mood and texture, conveying much with little and doing more with less. His work is quiet, understated and beautiful; he disappears behind the camera and observes, picking out the moments that others might not see and capturing the details that often go unnoticed. Basically if you want something to look really lovely whilst also seething with an undefined significance, you go to him. Or he’s quite good to share a pie and a pint with too.
